Love Island's Iain Stirling has joked that the new series of the show could be filmed in the UK after the success of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

The comedian and voice of the dating show - who married his girlfriend Laura Whitmore, who presents Love Island - admitted that setting it in Britain would "mix it up" a bot.

The show is usually filmed in Mallorca, Spain, but due to coronavirus restrictions, that could be off the cards. But like I'm A Celebrity, which was filmed in Gwrych Castle in Wales at the end of 2020 instead of the Australian outback, Love Island 2021 could get a UK-based makeover.

While plans for the new season haven't yet been confirmed, speaking to Metro, Stirling explained there might be another option - in the shape of the beautiful British coastline.

"Let’s see what happens," he said. "I’ve no idea, but it could be quite amusing seeing Love Island contestants embracing the beaches of Bognor Regis at some point. When they can’t eat their dinner because seagulls are taking it off the plate - it could mix it up!

"I genuinely thought I’m A Celeb was so brilliant this year, [so] it’s an option. I’m A Celeb did such a good job. It was so funny and such a good season. Watching a show like I’m A Celeb makes you really want to be involved again in a show that captures the nation.

"It’s a talking point, a water cooler moment every morning so I really want to get back."
